T.I. Close To New Single, Talks Cameos With Drake And Rick Ross

'I have a mutual respect for Drake as well as Rick Ross,' he tells MTV News.

NEW YORK — [artist id="1225081"]T.I.’s[/artist] King Uncaged doesn’t have a concrete release date yet, but the Grammy-winning superstar said he’s going to choose his next single within a few days.

“I don’t know, we’re gonna figure that out over the weekend,” Tip told MTV News at his star-studded secret show in Manhattan. “It’s gonna be jammin’. It’s gonna be like that.

“Some people wanna hear me go more ‘hood,” he added of the type of records up for consideration. “Some people think I should go ahead and do my regular one-two and let them come back to me.”

Regardless of what new song the King of the South goes with, he already has ample music in the marketplace now. Tip’s latest two cameos — he’s on [artist id="2545682"]Drake’s[/artist] “Fancy” with Swizz Beatz, and he joins Jadakiss and Erykah Badu on [artist id="2000082"]Rick Ross’[/artist] “Maybach Music III” — are paying dividends and going over heavy with the fans.

“Both of them, man, the opportunity was introduced to me by the artist, and all I can say is, I have a mutual respect for Drake as well as Rick Ross,” Tip said. “It was my pleasure to do it.

“I didn’t know it was gonna be Ross and Jada,” he said about “MMIII.” “I just got on there because Ross asked me to get on there. I heard the previous ‘Maybach Music’s, and I knew what they consisted of. So I knew what I could expect.”
